Accessibility Compliance

We must ensure that websites and applications are accessible to those with disabilities. The base templates and components of the UX Toolkit are, by default, accessible; however, anything added by development teams could cause additional accessibility errors that needs to be corrected. The links below contain valuable resources that can help address accessibility concerns.

Section 508 Scanner

One way to make accessibility compliance less daunting is to perform simple scans regularly through the development process.

Use the HTML CodeSniffer Accessibility Scanner to scan any page by launching the scanner after a page has loaded. Because it functions as a "bookmarklet" - a JavaScript utility that can be kept with your browser bookmarks, it can be quickly available at all times from the browser bar.

Set the standards setting to "Section508" (it is not the default setting).
